As Evan Huus said in his response the previous time you asked these questions:

	http://www.wireshark.org/lists/wireshark-dev/201205/msg00195.html

http://wiki.wireshark.org/Developers is the page that lists the core developers.

If you want to see *all* the commits, subscribe to the wireshark-commits list, and look at the archives of the list:

	http://www.wireshark.org/lists/

but it's a list that gets a message *every time a developer checks something in*, so it's a bit of a high-volume list and you might not want to subscribe to it, and there have been a lot of commits in the past, so you might not want to browse through the archives.

If you want to know what commits are made by a particular developer, then you can try to search for them on Ohloh:

	https://www.ohloh.net/

and, if they have an entry, it might have a link for Wireshark commits - for example, the entry for Gerald Combs has such a link:

	https://www.ohloh.net/p/wireshark/contributors/16342350561851

However, as they say, "Due to perf issues, we only show the last 300 days of commit activity", so you won't be able to find every commit they've ever made.

And, frankly, for any developer who's made a significant number of commits, you will very quickly become extremely bored if you look at a list of their commits,
